Pours an orange pumpkin color which matches the aroma. Taste is straight pumpkin with spice mixed in. A tasty herb style of beer which dissipated quickly.

Cloudy carrot orange color, some very nice lacing on the side of the glass, itís lovely.
Spicy, bready carrot cake aroma. There is a touch of cooked vegetables. Touch of nutmeg and brown sugar.
Nutty brown sugar flavors; the pumpkin comes out here, but it still manifests itself as a bready flavor. It is a wonderfully balanced flavor. Itís worth sipping, savoring.
The feel is buttery and thick; perfect for style. If you like Southern Tierís Pumking, this is probably the closest thing to it in this style.

Bottle from Craftsman Ale House. No head or carbonation at all. Heavy pumpkin aroma. Sweet and slightly sour taste. Pretty tasty despite marginal appearance and aroma.

Beer #1 in our annual Halloween pumpkin beer tasting. 12 oz bottle. Nose is fairly typical for style, with lots of pie spices up front with the meaty aroma of actual pumpkin noticeable. Pours slightly hazy pumpkin orange with a medium off-white head with decent retention; leaves a little lace. Taste is sweet and savory, roasty; tastes like pumpkin pie, clove is strong. Body is medium to thin, mouthfeel creamy. This is tasting really good right now, but itís my first pumpkin beer of the day. After tasting all the other ones we have lined up, I wonder if this one might not seem as impressive as it tastes right now. Itís a real straight-forward, yet well-crafted example of the style.

3.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep bronze color, little lacing is left on the glass. Aroma of pumpkin, caramel and spice. In the taste, mostly malt and pumpkin. A bit more hop influence than many examples of the style, with a hop/spice bite. Nutmeg, all spice and coriander dial in the holiday spices, but faint which makes for an easier drinking beverage. Nice malt and pumpkin flavor. Overall, a solid pumpkin ale.
